does anybody have other, "stock" recovery and/or boot images?

if i buy a second one (exactly the same, chinese version), how difficult is it to extract those from it? not that i am looking forward to spending another 800USD .... just weighing my options here.
i didnt erase anything but follow the guide in this topic http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2699065
and i found m8t recovery at http://bbs.anzhi.com/thread-8936202-1-1.html
hope useful

That thread isn't working right now - do you have a link to the M8t recovery file?

Thanks.

I have the correct recovery.img for the M8t now - I have rooted my own China Mobile 4G phone. However, I don't know how to upload the file or how to get a backup of the original boot.img Happy to help if one of you can tell me what to do. The website with the recovery on is in China and is sometimes OK, somethimes not - AND you need to register on the forum to get the file - not easy for non Chinese people! (like me!)

Hi, It seems that you flashed a custom ROM on the htc one m8t without S-OFF!! You can only flash ROMs that are branded for M8T (China mobile TD), because the custom kernal will not be flashed and youll be stuck at bootloader screen.
If you need to add google apps to your handset you follow the instructions on the thread link below, until then you CAN NOT flash other custom ROMS until a solution to make the M8T S-OFF is discovered (I tried Firewater and it did not work, but the chinese has made a hardware solution for S-OFF of M8T).

I am not sure if this is what you need. Just saw something in bbs.gfan.com about M8t RUU. I am newbie myself. Perhaps someone might be able to tell you if this can help you. I have a M8t and I couldnt get it S-off...

in the meantime, a few weeks ago, i have found someone on taobao who had the stock ROM. this should by now be publicly available. and he also s-offed it for me. he claimed that (at that time) only very few other people would've been able to do that. he used a gold card.

but as we all know, this is just a matter of time - sooner or later, everything ends up in the open.
